The banged up New York Jets offensive line has a pretty tall task ahead of it this weekend. Following a Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens where the line did a pretty good job of protecting Joe Flacco, the Jets will now take on an intimidating Cleveland Browns pass rush.
Led by All-Pro edge rusher Myles Garrett, the Browns managed to sack Baker Mayfield 4 times in their season opener against the Panthers. That included 2 from Garrett.
Now that pass rush will turn its attention toward the Jets, who are missing Mekhi Becton and Duane Brown on their offensive line.
Today, New york Jets head coach Robert Saleh was asked about Myles Garrett and gave a hilarious answer about the star pass rusher’s physique.

Myles Garrett certainly looks like he was built to be an absolute nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. At 6’4″ and 270 pounds, he is a handful for absolutely anybody who has the displeasure of lining up across from him.
He proved that once again in Week 1 on his way to being PFF’s highest graded defensive player for the week.

Unfortunately for Joe Flacco, he’s probably going to become all too familiar with the impressive physique of Myles Garrett in Week 2. While the Jets O-Line held up against the Ravens, taking on Myles Garrett and the Browns pass rush is a different kind of challenge. Flacco also isn’t exactly mobile enough to evade Garrett when he gets in the backfield.
Catch Saleh will surely be hoping his O-Line is on their A-game on Sunday or they’ll have a long day dealing with Garrett.
